Evernote, one of my favorite web apps (along with Google's many apps), has a great product, Evernote Clearly which is a browser extension for Google Chrome (other browsers will be added soon) that allows you to read online with less distractions. You simply click the extension and it hides all the distractions from blogs and articles, allowing you to read with less distractions and more easily.
It use it a lot, especially on sites that I want to clip to Evernote (it keeps all the junk from getting clipped too).
Evernote has just announced some great new features for Clearly. It now has related notes and highlighting.
Related notes is just like it is in the Evernote web clipper. When you visit a page and click on Clearly, it will show you related notes to the site you are viewing.
Highlighting allows you to highlight sections of the site you are viewing and when you clip it to Evernote, the highlighting remains. This is great for calling out important parts of something for yourself, or for people you are going to share the note with.
